In a statement for the Press, Chard deNiord has prepared the following description of "Sad Friends, Drowned Lovers, Stapled Songs": "Each new generation of poets is faced with the near impossible task of writing toward the unsayable in a new way. It is their sublime calling. The eleven major American poets who are featured in the interviews and essays in Sad Friends, Drowned Lovers, Stapled Song, Conversations and Reflections on 20th Century American Poets - Jack Gilbert, Maxine Kumin, Donald Hall, Robert Bly, Galway Kinnell, Ruth Stone, Lucille Clifton, Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Bishop, James Wright and Philip Levine-found implosive new language and forms for making new. Their poetry witnesses memorably to their age of the second half of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st. These interviews and essays preserve the mystery of their poems, while providing distilled bittersweet commentary on the life experiences, aesthetic breakthroughs and formidable ambition that imbue their careers."
